Okinawa sales target for this financial year is 90,000 units and the electric 2-wheeler maker is not very far from it…
Okinawa has risen to fame in the recent times and it has really made the most of the current push towards electrification of the mobility sector. The company says it is a 100 percent Indian electric 2-wheeler company which focuses on ‘Make in India’.
In a latest update the company has said that it has made a 100 percent switch to lithium-ion products. This means that it will not be using lead-acid batteries any more in its scooters. This also infers that all the company’s 2-wheelers that used these batteries will also be no more in the lineup.
Mr Jeetender Sharma – MD and founder, Okinawa said that when the company started operations lead acid was the most advanced available option but now with better technology in the form of lithium-ion coming in, the company is making a complete switch. Additionally, Okinawa scooters will also now come with detachable batteries ensuring convenience.
The press note that the company has shared also lists the total sales the company has done so far. Okinawa has sold 34,000+ lead-acid scooters since inception. Overall, it has retailed more than 74,500 electric 2-wheelers till now. The target is to reach 90,000 units by this year’s end.
Okinawa is among the largest selling electric 2-wheeler manufacturer in the country and this switch to better technology is a welcome step from the company.
